Oppo Find 7 to have a 5.5-inch screen with 2K resolution
As it became clear today, the upcoming Oppo Find 7 will have a 5.5-inch with the first ever 2K resolution display on a mobile phone. The resolution of 2560 x 1440px on a screen with a 5.5-inch diagonal adds for the whopping 538 pixels per inch.
Not only that, but the company is also promising "a 5.5" screen with the feel of a 5" screen device", meaning that it will probably have super slim bezels.
The Oppo Find 7 is a successor to the Oppo Find 5 but unlike what the name might suggest, it doesn't have a 7-inch screen.
We first heard about the Oppo Find 7 back in July but back then we weren't sure about the specs even though we heard rumors of some serious hardware.
Then in December things started heating up with more rumors and teasers coming out.
First, Oppo teased us that their new device will have LTE connectivity and we started hearing rumors about the device having a Snapdragon 804 chipset and a 5.7-inch screen.
Later, Oppo announced that the phone will be launching in early 2014.
In another move, we saw Carl Pei, director of Oppo's New Markets division, refute on Google+ the rumors about the device having a 5.7-inch or 7-inch screen leaving us curious and still guessing.
Then finally, ten days ago the company teased that the Oppo Find 7 will be the first phone to have a 2K display. That wasn't hard to believe as it was namely Oppo that introduced the first smartphone with a 5-inch 1080p screen. That was the Find 5, which was announced exactly a year ago.
Today we finally see the official specs of the Oppo Find 7 screen - just enough to wow us, but leaving us wanting to learn more.
